What is World Book Day?

World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.

This is the 18th year there’s been a World Book Day, and on 5th March 2015 children of all ages will come together to appreciate reading. Very loudly and very happily. The main aim of World Book Day in the UK and Ireland is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own.

Our Favourite Books




    Lily Alone by Jaqueline Wilson

My favourite book is Lily Alone because Lily has to take care of her younger brother and sisters because their Mum is depressed that her husband died. I love reading this book because Lily is always the brave one, she never lets her family down and she keeps her family together. My first impression was that the book was boring, however after finishing the book I wanted to read it over and over again. Sometimes I get emotional when reading this book and I would like to share this book with others.


    Cool by Michael Morpurgo

The book is about a boy named Robbie. He lies in hospital in a coma because of a terrible accident with his dog named Lucky. Robbie is on the brink of death, will he come home or will he be under the ground...

Read this book to reveal the shocking truth.


    Thief! by Malorie Blackman

This is my favourite book because it's about a girl who is going to her new Secondary School, relating to me. In the story Lydia tries to fit into the group, but their leader Anne tells Lydia she has to steal the school cup so she runs away and collapses...

What happened to Lydia? Where is she? Is she alive? This action packed adventure has all the suspense to intrigue a young soul, filled with unexpected twists and turns, this is by far the best book I've read.


    Animals of the World

Animals of the World is my favourite book because it gives me unlimited information on any animal, you name it. My favourite animal is a cheetah and by opening up this book I could get a trolley of facts and information. It includes innocent animals such as hamsters and ants to deadly ones. the most fascinating part of the book is that the page you are looking for is easy to locate using the well structured contents page.

Did you know that the Hyraxes are cousins with elephants?
